My DBK

Ok I know I just posted it in the other forum, But now its an issue. Upon playing my DBK today. I still felt something was "lacking" as opposed to the VWH. Theres nothing wrong with the guitar as far as Sound,Action,Tone,No Fret Buzzes nothing like that but I cant explain it GAHH

Talking Re: My DBK

hello i feel the same. i have both the dbk and the vwh.
the neck feels different and of course the sound(different pics)
sometimes i prefer the dbk but the vwh is more beutiful with the vines.

Re: My DBK

You shouldn't be bothered about what it looks like if that's part of the reason as ultimately feel and sound is the most important.

I'd try as many guitars as you can before trading for a 7vWH, I thought It'd be the be-all-and-end-all of guitars when I got mine and i'm looking to sell it now.

Re: My DBK

I got sick of looking at mine because whenever you go online all you see is 7vwh 7vwh 7vwh.

AND make sure it suits you. I've said it before and I'll say it again... the 7vwh is a complete pimp-guitar, too pimpy for most.

Re: My DBK

Careful Ed. Sometimes in life it's better to want something than to actually have it.

- what am I saying

Re: My DBK

keep the dbk and save for a vwh, it will make it all the more sweet when you do get it (plus you will regret selling the dbk )
